"I don't like cumin even though cumin seeds are very healthy but, they don't sit well with me. So I left them out.

Although the small cumin seed looks rather unassuming, its nutty peppery flavor packs a punch when it comes to adding a nutty and peppery flavor to chili and other Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes as well playing an important role in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine where it is a key component of curry powder."

"Enjoyed this salad however the 2 tablespoons of Cumin seed was not a flavor I really enjoyed. The cranberries were great in the salad. I do like a coleslaw with more of a vinegar/oil base. Bright and colorful."

"This sounds wonderful.  Do you think I  could make it today and put in fridge to serve  tomorrow?

Maybe I could put everything in except thr chopped apple and add it just before serving.
Please let me know what you think.
